Steamboat Powdercats offers AIARE (The American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education) Level I avalanche courses typically in early January.
The AIARE Level 1 avalanche course is designed as an introductory “stand-alone decision-makers course” for those planning on traveling and recreating in avalanche terrain. Our instructors are AIARE trained and qualified. The 24 hours of course work focuses on the basic skills necessary to manage your risk in the winter backcountry.
For the 2020/21 season, we are offering 3 courses:

Click on a date above to get on the waitlist for that specific course. Though our courses are now full we still like to have folks on waitlists just in case there are last minute openings.
For the 20/21 season, these courses will be a blend of online curriculum and online meetings, and then two field days up on Buffalo Pass. We are still working on the logistics for the field days and your instructor will fill you in as we the dates get closer.
